5 Reasons to Get the Fashion Blues for Spring

I can’t recall ever writing about blue, but recently I’ve gotten into the blues. I’ve got the blues bad. Every time I walk into a store, it’s like a magnet. I am automatically attracted to the shade I ignored for years.

I always appreciated the power of turquoise and teal, but denied the other shades of blue entry into my closet. Now I welcome blue with open arms.

I haven’t worn a maxi in a long time and I miss the comfortable, effortless feeling of it. Therefore, my first showcase is a lace blue maxi.

It’s an innocent look for either the girl with the perfect delicate accessories to go with it, or the gal who is capable of livening it up with some ostentatious pieces. Showcase this dress by showcasing your personality along with it. This is a wonderful option for a brunch or a Sunday BBQ.

Want a skirt for the office or a luncheon? I love the Vince Camuto Peplum Pencil Skirt. It’s always a good day for a pencil skirt. Feel and be flattered in this gorgeous, deep and luxurious skirt. Pair it with a ruffle sheer top or a short blazer for the office.

At times it can be tiring wearing the typical skirt and dress. On these days, I love pulling out a jumpsuit.

A jumpsuit can look dressy and fab when you wear it correctly. They’re not the best for a shorter gal, but they look gorgeous on taller body types. The open shoulder on this jumpsuit gives it extra edge and sex appeal. I love the cut and the sort of vintage look it represents.
